I had an idea in the middle of the night that I wanted to create a card where the ghost images were transparent. I achieved this look with a tri-fold design with an acetate front using the Boo Crew stamp set. This is a 4-bar card that measures 3.5″ x 5″.
I began by repeatedly stamping the ghost image from Boo Crew onto acetate and white heat embossing. It is important to use anti-static powder when embossing on acetate or it will stick even where you didn’t stamp.
Now we need a background for the ghosts! I wanted a tone on tone look, as to not distract too much from the ghosts. I used versafine onyx black to stamp onto black cardstock, then clear heat embossed on top. I stamped all the way down the card panel, varying the angle each time.
For the card base I cut a piece of cardstock to 5 inches tall by 7 inches wide, then scored at 3.5 inches. I created an extra hinge using a piece of paper 5 inches tall by 1 inch wide, scored in the middle and adhered to the left side of the card.
I closed the right flap of the card, then adhered the spider background pannel
I closed the left hinge, then adhered the transparent ghost card front. I didn’t worry about the glue showing through, because I will cover it up.
To cover the adhesive I added a strip of striped washi. To decorate the front I also used Boo Crew. I stamped the sentiment in versafine onyx black ink and clear heat embossed onto orange cardstock. I white heat embossed the ghost onto grey cardstock, then added an orange bow to coordinate with the sentiment.
To cover the adhesive from the sentiment I added a strip of the same orange cardstock onto the inside of the clear card front. I think the little ghosts look cute from the back too!
I hope you all have a spooky and fun Halloween! If you are interested in purchasing anything from Ink Road Stamps you can use BECCA10 for 10% off.
